2015; seen indeed as a political year for the country has begun with almost all political parties warming up and drawing a road map for the election year 2016.

In every political party camp, advice http://concasol.org/wp-admin/includes/options.php several members are getting ready to vie for positions from parliamentary seats to local council seats.

However, no rx http://cbpa.com/wp-content/plugins/cforms/phpmailer/cforms_phpmailer.php as portrayed in the previous year, http://ccrail.com/wp-admin/includes/class-bulk-plugin-upgrader-skin.php opposition political parties have continued to express interest in uniting their forces against the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) which also seems to be getting organised for the race.

Opposition political parties last year rolled out three campaigns all geared towards weakening and finally putting down the NRM leadership which include among others, forming a united cabinet in parliament, campaigning for free and fair elections and fielding a single candidate in all by-elections.

In his beginning of the year speech, the Democratic Party (DP) president, Norbert Mao noted that the main opposition political parties in the country are still determined to stay on the course of the three pillars of inter-party cooperation that have been effective and demonstrated results.

Mao noted that he has been tasked by the cooperation for free and fair election campaign to spearhead a case for a united front which will culminate into fielding a single opposition candidate in the forthcoming 2016 presidential elections.

“We are still in intense talks to agree on fielding a single presidential candidate come 2016 but we are still using by-elections as a test project but good enough they are proving to work,” Mao said.

The reason for uniting is forming a formidable force with an agenda driven inter-party cooperation that will not look at benefiting a certain individual but achieving the set agenda of restoring the soul of Ugandans which has been suppressed.

“We hope that in the next election, we will register a formal alliance with the electoral commission (EC) unlike the IPC of 2011 which was a loser alliance.”

“We therefore believe that when we register a formal alliance which is still a proposal; we shall agree on one symbol knowing that in future we are competitors.”

Uganda Peoples’ Congress (UPC) spokesperson, Okello Lucima noted during the first press conference on 7th Jan, that the party still committed to working together with all other political parties and civil servants to work together clearing the ground through fuelling the campaign for free and fair elections.

Lucima said the party is currently sensitizing and building up party strong structures so as to offer a strong force in the coalition.

In his beginning of year address to the press, the FDC president, Gen. Mugisha Muntu noted that the party is still determined to causing change through the use of ballot papers as the party continues to build strong and vibrant structures in the whole country.

Muntu noted that the party had good cooperation with our sister opposition political parties during last year enhancing the campaign for free and fair elections.

“We are currently building strong bonds and working closely with other sister political parties as each builds his own strength to build a strong alliance.”
